STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (WTAJ) — It’s the season of the seven fishes! And the perfect spot to pick up some fresh seafood is Maine Bay & Berry. Owner Shaun Knight drives to Maine to pick up the fresh seafood to keep his Centre County store stocked year-round.
Many of the items and ingredients that Shaun uses can be picked up in the store. They offer a variety of spices, sauces, mixes, and local items to make any meal sing!
“This is not diet-conscious, so just go into this knowing that it’s going to be a great time,” says Knight. The recipe calls for a delicious made-from-scratch Alfredo sauce that is surprisingly easy to make. “The sauce actually calls for heavy cream, cream cheese and butter.” Maine Bay & Berry has a partnership with Casco Bay Creamery in Maine, so this butter is no ordinary butter it’s 84% milk fat.
Shaun shares his recipe for Shrimp Tortellini Alfredo with Morgan on the show. The recipe is listed below.
